The engraved views of William James Bennett (c. 1784-1833), must be seen as part of the American flowering of several important earlier English developments in the graphic arts. He embodies the topographical tradition and is the artist who did the most to establish an independent American school of city view makers. Here are 41 examples of his work in full-page prints, with critical and biographical introductions and a complete, annotated checklist of the Library's holdings.
Paperback, 92 pages, 9 color plates, 32 black-and-white duotones, 10¾ x 10¼ inches.
